WASHINGTON — Up against adeadline, Congress passed andsent a waiting President BarackObama legislation late Wednesdaynight to avoid a threatened nation-al default and end the 16-day par-tial government shutdown, theculmination of an epic politicaldrama that placed the U.S. econo-my at risk.The Senate voted first, a biparti-san 81-18 at midevening. Thatcleared the way for a final 285-144vote in the Republican-controlledHouse about two hours later on thelegislation, which hewed strictlyto the termsObama laiddown when thetwin criseserupted morethan threeweeks ago.The legisla-tion would per-mit theTreasury to bor-row normally through Feb. 7 orperhaps a month longer, and fundthe government through Jan. 15.More than 2 million federal work-ers would be paid — those who hadremained on the job and those whohad been furloughed.After the Senate approved themeasure, Obama hailed the voteand said he would sign it immedi-ately after it reached his desk.“We’ll begin reopening our gov-ernment immediately and we canbegin to lift this cloud of uncer-tainty from our businesses and theAmerican people.”Later, in the House, Rep. HaroldRogers, R-Ky., said, “After twolong weeks, it is time to end thisgovernment shutdown. It’s time totake the threat of default off thetable. It’s time to restore somesanity to this place.”The stock market surged higherat the prospect of an end to the cri-

18-foot-long seacreature found off the coast
LOS ANGELES — Amarine scienceinstructor snorkeling off the SouthernCalifornia coast spotted something outof a fantasy novel: the silvery carcassof an 18-foot-long, serpent-likeoarfish.Jasmine Santana of the CatalinaIsland Marine Institute needed morethan 15 helpers to drag the giant seacreature with eyes the size of half dol-lars to shore Sunday.Staffers at the institute are calling itthe discovery of a lifetime.“We’ve never seen a fish this big,”said Mark Waddington, senior captainof the Tole Mour, CIMI’s sail trainingship. “The last oarfish we saw was threefeet long.”Because oarfish dive more than 3,000feet deep, sightings of the creatures arerare and they are largely unstudied,according to CIMI.The obscure fish apparently died of natural causes. Tissue samples andvideo footage were sent to be studied bybiologists at the University of California, Santa Barbara.Santana spotted something shimmer-ing about 30 feet deep while snorkelingduring a staff trip in Toyon Bay at SantaCatalina Island, about two dozen milesfrom the mainland.“She said, ‘I have to drag this thingout of here or nobody will believeme,”’Waddington said.After she dragged the carcass by thetail for more than 75 feet, stafferswaded in and helped her bring it toshore.The carcass was on display Tuesdayfor fifth, sixth, and seventh grade stu-dents studying at CIMI. It will beburied in the sand until it decomposesand then its skeleton will be reconsti-tuted for display, Waddington said.The oarfish, which can grow to morethan 50 feet, is a deep-water pelagicfish — the longest bony fish in theworld, according to CIMI.They are likely responsible for seaserpent legends throughout history.
